You were just being mean by not having anticipated that this might happen when you wrote it 20 years ago!
Instead of talking to your plants, if you yelled at them would they still grow, but only to be troubled and insecure?

Not unlike this great scene from Annie Hall, where Woody just happens to have the ultimate authority on hand:

Woody is a Dick, but when he is the intellects’ anti-intellectual he can be brilliant.

Reminds me of the Kurt Vonnegut joke in Back to School.

A late friend in Seattle, Ed Olson, was one of the most knowledgeable people on the history of cameras and camera design. He had a question he could not answer and went to look for the answer. One thing he did was write a letter to Eastman Kodak looking for information. On return, Kodak gave him what information they had and finished by saying, "If you are looking for more information, we suggest that you contact Ed Olson in Seattle." Ed had that letter on the wall of his store until he closed it a few years later.
